I worked at Schlumberger full-time

Pros

Training program, benefits, opportunities to learn.

Cons

When a company got too big you may be dealing with multiple layers of management. Sometimes too service-oriented.

    I worked at Schlumberger full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Job bonuses can really add up. Most co-workers were really good people and fun to work with.

    Cons

    Horrible work life balance. You may be expected to go days without sleep depending on your position. Hiring and firing occurs with every slight movement of gas and oil prices.

    I worked at Schlumberger full-time

    Pros

    Money--> but money isn't everything

    Cons

    I feel like you can never tell anyone how you really feel, for constant fear that you may get fired of that they would think of a way to fire you.

    Bad health... always being in the field turns you to 3am breakfast burritos, sodas and bags of chips. Some weeks I worked 90 hours for 3 weeks in a row. I barely had time to sleep or do anything. I was like a zombie, and so tired. I got in trouble once for closing my eyes and relaxing because I was sooo tired.

    If you want money and are desperate then maybe this is the place for you, but you will quickly realize that money is not everything.

    Advice to Management

    Please taken into account people's lives more. The company focuses too much on money and money, and then there is nothing else to focus on. People have families and friends, and have hobbies.
